I think I pressed my snooze button for half an hour this morning.
Pathetic. I know.
All I have to say is thank God for programmable coffee makers. Seriously. Without them I probably would not get out of bed on time.
This breakfast did a pretty good job of getting me out of bed too.
Smoked salmon on an english muffin, topped with an egg over easy.
I have an infatuation with runny egg yolks.
I love fried eggs on salads. The egg yolks make a creamy dressing.
I also am a believer that eggs can transform leftovers.
But that’s just me.
This was such a busy prep day. I still have a lot more to do tomorrow.
I swear it never ends.
Right when I think I’m ahead of the game, I realize I’m totally not.

That little bugger was the bane of my existence today.
Although he wasn’t so little.
On the way home I was feeling sort of proactive about doing some type of a workout.
When I got home, that was so not the case anymore.
I need someone to motivate me to get my butt in gear. I can too easily convince myself that I don’t feel like working out most of the time. I wish I were a runner that could go on for miles. Unfortunately that is son not the case. Sigh. Get me out of this lazy slump!!!!
I did make a tasty mish mash of a dinner though.
I found some brussels sprouts hanging out in my vegetable drawer so I decided to use them up. It is spring after all. Totally not brussels season anymore.
I trimmed the woody end and cut them in half.
Then I laid them cut side down on a skillet with some olive oil. I also gave them a light seasoning of salt and pepper.
I turned the heat up to about medium and let them sizzle in the pan until they developed some deep color to them.
I gave them a little shake and stir. Then deglazed the pan with some balsamic fig vinegar and a pinch of brown sugar.
MMh. I love that delicious glaze.
Then I added some diced tomatoes with juice that I had leftover in my fridge to the pan too.
I let it simmer down for a few minutes.
I cooked some millet on the side. I overcooked it a little because I wasn’t paying attention. I was too busy trying to lick balsamic glaze off the spoon.
Of course I still ate it though. I ended up flaking a tiny bit of coconut oil in with the millet too.
The complete dinner ended up being coconut millet with balsamic glazed brussels, roasted broccoli and diced tomatoes. A piece of naan bread served on the side.
I love glazed vegetables.
But not as much as I love me some naan.
Now it’s time for a glass of wine and a movie. Or maybe a book. Or maybe I’ll just play with new Iphone apps all night.
Late night post tomorrow.
